Why I like Boo

Boo is a very simple programming language.

I am not sure that I would use it in a production application for fear of the maintenance problems (where do you get Boo programmers from?).

Things that I particularly like are:

Booish – being able to interactively play with practacally any .NET class without the need for a heavyweight IDE to be open.

The fact that you can post the source code to a blog like this without messing up the formatting!

I am planning a series of topics on Boo and the .NET 3 Pillars:

  • WF – windows workflow
  • WPF – windows presentation foundation
  • WCF – windows communication framework

At first I will be using Boo plus Nant but may need to stray into MSBuild.
